Looking for love? Thailand targets lonely singles in latest bid to attract foreign tourists   Picture: Bangkok Biz News   The Tourism Authority of Thailand has been working on

OMG are they for real , what do they think all the beer bars/gogo bars are for . There are web sites already for those looking for dates (lol) or relationships so i doubt there is anything TAT could d

Anyone thinking this, or the "faith tours" are "BRIGHT" ideas, should get an immediate brain scan !

Effectively the TAT would become a matchmaker for singles looking for love. 

TAT, you are good at putting a price on everything, how much would you expect tourists will be spending on LOVE??? Could you give an estimate of what Thai love costs? Will it be safe for tourists? Will it qualify for the governments "Let's go Halves" scheme?

They are clueless, simply its incredibly difficult and expensive to plan a trip to Thailand ... hence no tourism!

 

Offering buy a tart and get two free style promotions wont change visitor levels.

 

 

Sometimes i think the daily TAT nonsense statements which this site always publishes are arranged to maintain readership clicks and advertising revenue ..... 

 

Thai visa should arrange a weekly competition among readers.

 

Send in your own spoof TAT statement.

 

The one with the most votes wins a month of Thai visa viewing totally free of adverts and pop ups.

This is one of the reasons I moved to Thailand, their simple naivete. Nalak mak. Sure you can possibly find a bar girl for a wife, but there are arguably many more devout buddhist women who may make excellent partners, although even these are not particularly common. Some of these will be perfectly devoted and loving as long as the gravy-train continues, their continuing devotion dependent on the gravy continuing to flow. Having said that, you may be even more fortunate in coming across a partner that will stay "for better or worse". Best of luck.
The pursuit of love is riddled with pitfalls, even more so in the Thai-centric interpretation of farang-Thai interactions e.g. relationship separations, motorvehicle accidents, land-ownership, treatment by the police and military authorities, recourse avenues for being scammed etc. For many it is far safer and cheaper to remain largely single with the occasional tryst, unless you are specifically looking for a 'live-in carer' wife, or starting a family that you may have missed out on in your previous faranng wife. 

Be careful what you pray for... it might just fome true. :)

Next up TAT will advertise a special new visa:  This Visa will allow you to complete an Online Marriage with the Amphur, but can only be done for those who have met on-line and want to be married, such as love at first sight.  The new Visa to be approved is called the "Marry your Internet sweetheart Visa, or the new MYIS Visa". 

 

With this new visa you can immediately open a bank account from your foreign country, build a house, have your new spouse buy a car in your name, and when you arrive in Thailand she will be there to Wisk you away to your new home and new life.  Total Cost only 4 Million Thai Baht, but during this one and only TAT promotion this MYIS Visa can be yours for only 2 Million Thai Baht provided you live in her village with her parents.

I'm confused.  

 

How can someone have a brain scan if the brain in non-existent.

Bangkok Biz News said the TAT hit on the idea of getting single people to come in and go to selected temples on river tours to pray to find the right marriage partner. 

 

The best temples would be selected that have proven in the past to achieve the finest results.

It´s really sad that they actually believe the rest of the world fall for their BS.

C'mon man... If I'm going to go bang on something for love, it's not going to be in a temple. And someone above made a valid point, who's vetting the girls? Every woman I've met in this country (my wife included, before you comment) is in it for one thing... It isn't love. If you can accept that and love on, then great. But you're not bringing new guys out and sending them home happy, as soon as they find out they're just walking ATM's for mom's sick buffalo. It takes years it takes years of disappointment to learn that Thai girls are only good at one thing. And maybe "another," (clears throat) if you're lucky. This TAT dude is a <deleted>
